This website aims to give radiography students the opportunity to revise skull and facial bones technique. It allows users to practice and receive feedback on patient and equipment positioning by use of an interactive tool. This tool is designed to be intuitive to use, but please take time to use the introduction to the tool here.
The positioning on this website is based on conventional radiography, and must be adapted if using isocentric equipment.
The site deals with gross anatomy and radiographic imaging of the skull and facial bones but does not cover pathology, image interpretation or exposure factors.
The skull is made up of 22 bones, which may be divided into 8 cranial bones and 14 facial bones. The term 'skull' usually refers to the bones of the cranium only. This terminology will be used on this website.
This website was designed as part of a final year BSc(Hons) Diagnostic Imaging project. Although the contents is as accurate and complete as possible, further independent reading is highly recommended to supplement your learning.
